MacPherson struts
- shares

A modern front suspension system which supports the car's weight and acts as shock absorbers. The main alternative is a double wishbone arrangement. McPherson Struts consists of a small subframe (or a substantial link stabilized by a secondary link) which allows a mounting point for the axle of the wheel. Generally the McPherson Strut is only used for the front wheels, but it also used for rear wheels in some cars.
